This is what has kept him on top of the division for so long and it wasn't until he met Conor McGregor that he faced someone with comparable attributes.

Aldo, for his part, believes McGregor knows deep down that the knockout was a fluke, and as such, never wants to have a rematch.

"I try to see the good in it, the silver lining in everything", Aldo said. Before, Id tried to move up to lightweight and couldnt.

Moraes isn't ranked yet in the UFC, but by all accounts he is a Top 5-caliber fighter and has his sights set on the title.

Nobody was really asking for the Bisping fight, but it was easy to talk yourself into liking it once it was announced.

Aldo is a defensive master and one of the most brutal tacticians in all of MMA. Surely Holloway's title fight would come next.

“He comes forward all the time, ” Aldo said. "I've been telling you". Jose Aldo is the promoted champ, while Max Holloway is the interim champion.

Nate Marquardt has had so many fights in UFC the time for him has to be coming to an end. The victor should get another chance.

For roughly a decade, Jose Aldo has been one of the pound-for-pound best fighters on the planet, but we it's undeniable that he looked like a different fighter in his last bout against Frankie Edgar. The guy hasnt beaten anyone under the age of 40 since 2013. Playing a patient game could help Silva get the win.
